Philippine Fiesta in Seoul
Remember that “One Philippines Festival” that was postponed last May at Seoul Plaza because of the death of the former President Roh? It has been rescheduled on July 5 at the newly opened Banpo Park.
The festival will mark the 14th Filipino Migrant Workers Day, 111th Philippine Independence Day and the 60th Year of the Philippines-Korea Bilateral Relations. Three celebrations in one.
The activities will begin with a concelebrated Mass at 930 in the morning, followed by the Philippine Independence Day program. There will be booth services after the program which includes medical, legal and banks. There will be no consular services for the day though.
The parade of festivals will start at 130 in the afternoon. This will be followed by music and dance performances. The Filipino Migrant Workers Day program at 3PM and the 60th Anniversary Concert at 4PM will end the day-long festival.
The festival is supported by the Ministry of Labor (Korea) and the Human Resources Development of Korea, Landbank, Metrobank, KEB, Woori Bank, Philippine Airlines and Western Union.
